EAST SETAUKET

For the second year in a row, East Setauket’s Ryan Himmelsbach was the last person standing at the Long Island Regional Spelling Bee.

A total of 41 Long Island students competed Sunday for the top spot in the regional Scripps Spelling Bee at Hofstra University. But Himmelsbach, a 13 year old eighth grader at Paul J Gelinas Junior High in East Setauket, managed to walk away with his second win.

“I’m really proud about it,” he tells News 12. “To me, it’s a huge achievement.”

Himmelsbach’s winning word was “teleost,” and he also correctly spelled “chevalet” and “apoptosis” in the final rounds. Now, he’ll go on to represent Long Island at the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

His passion for sounding out complicated words emerged as a talent early in life.

“Since the time he could talk, he was very interested in books and always pointing out words saying, ‘What does that mean, what does that say?'” says his mother, Allison Himmelsbach.

Himmelsbach spends several hours every day studying vocabulary words, and his mastery of spelling means he can figure out words that he’s never heard before.

“I pick up on a lot of patterns and roots from different languages which helps a lot when I have to spell a word I’ve never heard of exactly,” the student says.

Now he’s hoping to be the next C H A M P. The Scripps National Spelling Bee will be held from May 27 through June 1 in Maryland.

joslyn ugg boots Grad student accused of scamming woman to pay his tuition

(AP) A Brown University graduate student was charged Thursday with scamming a Florida woman out of $30,000 by telling her he wanted to open a school for poor children in Dubai.

Li did not enter a plea during an appearance in Providence District Court on a felony state charge of obtaining money under false pretenses, according to court records. He was ordered held on $3,000 bail and made to surrender his passport. A court spokesman said Thursday no attorney had yet entered an appearance on Li’s behalf. Li did not immediately return an email seeking comment.

Police said Thursday that they believed Li was working with people in Nigeria, a haven for online scams targeting women.

“He was meeting people online, on a dating website, elderly woman, and schmoozing them, and convincing them that he was going to start a school for children in Dubai,” O’Hara said.

A partially redacted police report, first obtained by WPRI TV and released by Providence Police to The Associated Press, said Homeland Security began investigating Li on Nov. Many of those people had been linked to large deposits into other accounts that were closed for bank fraud, the report said.

In fact, investigators said in the report, the money went to Li. He was caught on a surveillance camera making transactions with the account at an ATM near his home in Providence, the report said.

The report said that Bank of America froze Li’s account. When he called to ask about it Dec. 5, Li reportedly told the bank that the deposits were arranged by a friend who lived overseas and who was lending him money. He said he used the money to pay tuition at the Ivy League university and to pay for rent and other personal expenses, according to the report. He said “he had no idea how his friend arranges for people to deposit money into the account,” the report said. A spokesman for the department would not comment on the case.

schuh sale ugg boots Graber wins provincial curling title

tall chestnut ugg boots Graber wins provincial curling title

Dennis Graber’s Kamloops/Prince George rink wasn’t even a rink two months ago.

On Sunday, it became a provincial champion. senior men’s curling championship in Kelowna, beating New Westminster’s Doug Meger 7 4 in Sunday’s final. at the Canadian senior men’s championship in Abbotsford from March 17 25.

It was a great week for the Graber rink, which features Kamloops’ Brian Windsor, who threw fourth stones, along with second Garnet Boese and lead David Johnston, both of Prince George.

Windsor and Graber who have been a tandem for seven or eight years, Windsor figured got a bit of a late start to the senior season, and were looking for a couple of teammates. Graber and Boese were familiar with one another, so the two men from Prince George joined the two men from Kamloops.

“We only had one practice weekend,” explained Windsor, “then we did playdowns (Jan. 14 15) and provincials.”

It must have been a brilliant practice weekend, as the Graber crew was excellent at provincials, going 6 1 to finish first in the round robin and go directly to the final.

Meger, meanwhile, was 4 3 in the round robin, so had to win a tiebreaker on Saturday along with Sunday’s semifinal.

But it was Meger who drew the first real blood in Sunday’s final he scored three in the sixth end to go ahead 4 1.

It didn’t bother the Graber rink, although it gave it something of a kickstart.

“Our plan was to be fairly cautious and try to keep the hammer advantage,” Windsor said. “The ice conditions were difficult . . . and we were determined to be patient, unless we were behind.

“Unfortunately, we got behind.”

The seventh was the “key end,” Windsor said, and Graber picked up a deuce to make it 4 3.

Graber went on to steal two in the eighth, and then another deuce in the ninth, when Meger came up short on a draw on a slow path.

“It was the slowest path on the sheet, and we knew that . . .” Windsor said. “He had to get the full eight foot, and 95 per cent of the time, he would have made the shot. But it was such a slow path, it stopped short.”

Once Graber ran Meger out of rocks in the 10th end, there wasn’t a huge celebration on the ice.

“It was relief,” Windsor said. “That 10th end got a little tense . . . we missed a peel and we didn’t want to give up three and go to an extra end.

“It looked like it was possible, but once it was over, we were pretty excited.”

It will be the first Canadian senior championship for Windsor, 52, who has been to a Brier national men’s championship (with Graber in 2006) and two Canadian mixed championships (in 1991 and 2004). Graber, along with being at the 2006 Brier in Regina, also attended the 1982 Brier in Brandon, and won a provincial senior men’s title alongside Kelowna’s Rick Folk in 2007.

tall chestnut uggs Gowns And Drama Come North Of The Border

You always will have somebody who has something in mind that they really want and it’s not available to them or it’s not suited to them and you have to hear the ins and outs of everything and try to explain why we’re saying this we want you to see the difference. So what we would do is say ‘Ok fine, let her try on the things she wants’ but when you’re seeing her you get a vision of what I can see on her, and hopefully in the few gowns that she tries on we bring in that piece and it’s a magical thing when they see it and they may not expect it.

Think about a couple of styles, so I would tell them always to go try a few pieces on before you actually come in for that day, like at a trunk show. That day you’re overwhelmed, you have your mom, mother in law, friends, whatever and they all have their looks that they want you to be in, and you get seven people giving their opinion, and the bride is standing there saying ‘I want to satisfy seven people and I’m having a difficult time because they’re confusing’ or they’re putting ideas in her head. So it’s all about listening, but for the bride it’s her final decision.

Oh, there’s drama in everything. Mothers that won’t even agree with the bride ever, it’s like she’s getting married, not the bride. Brothers too, the same thing, some people can be very cruel to their siblings. But on the whole, everyone is loving. Princesses that come out you’d think that their carriage was outside waiting to carry them. But that’s the whole excitement of this, I find, is that you have such a variety of life and nationalities and dollar wise and family and it’s all about that and trying to make it for them what is perfect, and that’s what we do.

We’ve had brides getting married in the next month, so we had to get them gowns off the floor. We’ve had ‘Omg we got engaged I want to get married tomorrow’ and these things happen. Some people wait two years but I think that’s too far, things happen with your body in two years. This customer was pregnant, so she was going to have the baby and then she was going to get into her wedding gown, and she was very small and it’s so hard to say ‘You should wait because your body is going to change, you may go up a size or two, you may drop, who knows’ but that would be too much of a change of a gown.

chestnut ugg boots size 5 Governor went from bright promise to underachiever

womens ugg sale Governor went from bright promise to underachiever

With a little more than two weeks remaining in this year’s state legislative session, the persistent question at the Capitol is how two term Gov. Susana Martinez will be remembered.

Martinez has established herself as one of the biggest underachievers in state history.

Few have bludgeoned the chance to make a difference the way Martinez has. The Republican governor, 58, has squandered what should have been the best eight years of her life.

Martinez arrived in Santa Fe riding a crest of goodwill as the nation’s first female Hispanic governor. Even many who were lukewarm about her candidacy rooted for her.

A large crowd gathered on the Plaza for her inaugural speech in 2011. Nobody wanted to be outdoors on that frigid day. People nonetheless lined up to listen to Martinez, who had a compelling biography.

She grew up of modest means in El Paso. Martinez stayed home for college at the University of Texas at El Paso. Then she went to law school at the University of Oklahoma.

Martinez landed a job in the prosecutor’s office in Doa Ana County. She eventually switched her party registration from Democrat to Republican, and pulled an upset by becoming the elected district attorney in a county tinged in blue.

Being district attorney for a single county was the right fit for Martinez.

She called all the shots. And she was comfortable in an adversarial system, battling defense lawyers and their clients.

She never should have left that world. But raw ambition can derail a productive career.

A Republican operative saw Martinez as someone who could win higher office. Martinez wanted that, too. So, while in her fourth term as a district attorney, she entered the race for governor.

Voters were sick of outgoing Gov. Bill Richardson, a Democrat who had run for president and was the target of corruption investigations. Martinez positioned herself as the antidote to Richardson.

Her grasp of state government was thin, but sizzle often matters more than substance in campaigns.

Reality set in after Martinez won the election. She found that running for office and excelling in office are two very different skills.

As governor, she picked unnecessary fights right from the start. In one, she attacked the movie industry, which was putting people to work during a long, cold recession.

Martinez did not like the tax rebates that filmmakers received for shooting in New Mexico. She raged about it, hurting the state’s economy.

This was one of many battles Martinez manufactured with Democrats who control the Legislature.

In another,
chestnut ugg boots size 5 Governor went from bright promise to underachiever
she wanted to repeal the law that allowed undocumented immigrants living in New Mexico to obtain a state driver’s license.

Then state Rep. Bill O’Neill, D Albuquerque, offered a compromise bill to Martinez in 2011. But she continued fighting with Democrats about driver’s licenses for another six years. Martinez finally accepted a bill to allow driving privileges for undocumented immigrants that was quite similar to what O’Neill had proposed long before.

Martinez also picked the wrong people for important jobs.

She put Hanna Skandera, who had never been a teacher, in charge of public schools. Skandera copied programs, most of them unsuccessful, that Jeb Bush had put in place when he was governor of Florida.

Worst of all, though, Martinez never had a plan to improve the state.

Her 2013 corporate tax cuts, abetted by Democrats in the Legislature, reduced state revenues and caused more pain for public schools.

Martinez last year vetoed funding for colleges and universities. That move affirmed her standing as a pugilist without a purpose.

It was laughable when Martinez began this 30 day legislative session by talking about how important it is to reform the state’s messy tax code.

She could have made that statement in 2011, her first year in office, and found plenty of support for cutting through the thicket of tax exemptions to uncover the ones that help nobody except the recipient of a government giveaway. But Martinez was so obsessed with driver’s licenses, moviemakers and grading public schools that she shoved important issues down the agenda.

She has been running out the clock on her second term since December 2015. That was when her boozy holiday party at the Eldorado Hotel brought complaints from guests.

Martinez, supposedly a champion of law enforcement, tried to use her title to intimidate Santa Fe police, who were summoned to investigate the party.

ugg boots josette Governor Brown ends drought state of emergency in most of California

The State Water Resources Control Board will maintain urban water use reporting requirements and prohibitions on wasteful practices such as watering during or after rainfall, hosing off sidewalks and irrigating ornamental turf on public street medians.

The drought that spanned water years 2012 through 2016 included the driest four year statewide precipitation on record (2012 2015) and the smallest Sierra Cascades snowpack on record (2015, with 5 percent of average).

It was marked by extraordinary heat: 2014, 2015 and 2016 were California’s first, second and third warmest year in terms of statewide average temperatures.

In addition to the Governor’s order, state agencies released a long term plan to better prepare the state for future droughts and make conservation a California way of life.

Central to the plan is a requirement that the state’s 410 urban water suppliers meet new water use targets. Suppliers would calculate their water efficiency targets based on a common methodology that takes into account the diverse climatic, demographic and land use characteristics of each agency’s service area. Urban water suppliers would set new targets by 2021 with a full compliance deadline of 2025.

Other key elements of the plan include:

Bans on wasteful practices,

such as hosing sidewalks and watering lawns after rain, technical assistance, financial incentives and standards to guide water suppliers’ efforts to detect and repair leaks.

Requiring urban water suppliers to prepare water shortage contingency plans, including a drought risk assessment every five years.

Requiring more agricultural water suppliers to submit plans that quantify measures to increase water use efficiency and develop adequate drought plans.

Monthly reporting by urban water suppliers on water usage, conservation achieved and enforcement efforts

Improved drought planning for small water suppliers and rural communities.

All aim to achieve the four main objectives of the Governor’s : use water more wisely, eliminate water waste, strengthen local drought resilience,
